Support for Microsoft Office and Outlook 2007 has ended.
As of October 10th, 2017, support for Microsoft Office 2007 and Outlook 2007 has come to an end.
This means that Microsoft will no longer be providing security updates and support for these two software platforms.
For those of you still using Office and Outlook 2007, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version, Office 2016, in order to have full support and the advantage of the features offered by the upgrade.
Another option is to migrate to Office 365 where Microsoft stores your files and emails in a Cloud-based environment.
Please note that if you are using Office 2007 on the Office 365 platform you will need to upgrade Office 2007 to the latest version in order to continue to access email and Exchange through Office 365.
Office 2007’s end of life presents the opportunity to make some changes to your technology. Whether you decide to upgrade to Office 2016 or migrate to Office 365, taking the time to remove antiquated systems from your infrastructure will help ensure the safety and security of your data and email moving forward.
